Communal Siyyum HaTorah

in honor of Shabuot

Wednesday, May 27, 5:00PM

Open to adults, boys, girls, individuals, and families
Siyyum to be held on Zoom on Wednesday evening, May 27
 

SIGN UP FOR A PARASHA HERE

 
What better way to spend our quarantine than reconnecting with the text that shapes our lives?
 
This year, we look forward to introducing a very special project in honor of Shabuot: individuals and families learning the parshiot, culminating in a communal siyyum open to all who wish to join. Together, we will learn the entire Torah in time to celebrate it in a virtual siyyum before Shabuot.
 
A signup sheet for the 54 parshiot is available here, and we encourage everyone to sign up for a Parasha (or more!) to learn, either on your own or with your family. 
 
By signing up, you are committing to learn your parasha at your own pace and in your own way, in time for the siyyum on May 27, where you will be honored for your achievement.
 

The siyyum will feature 5 brief dibrei torah (4-5 minutes) from our participants, one from each book of the Torah. If you would like to be considered for one of these short presentations, please contact Z. Edinger.
